- Compilation and Analysis of Naturalistic Language Corpora (Speech, Text, Child-Directed Speech)
I study how language abilities emerge with experience across the lifespan, including language comprehension, production, and reading. I use varied methods and measures, including language comprehension and production experiments in adults and children, compilation and analyses of text and speech corpora, and advanced quantitative methods.
